The Chesterfield Mayfair
When you come to an absolutely stunning hotel like this, it’s only natural to expect the best. Grandeur without end, top end, service, rooms so big that you could easily live in them full time. The very greatest parts of the hotel industry, all gathered up in one place. For the price that you’re paying, it had better be good! These are all reason why one might come to see the Chesterfield Mayfair, but it’s not the biggest draw. No, that honour belongs to the amalgamations of sugar, flour, eggs and butter that lie in the dining room.
The afternoon tea here is to die for. It really is something else: utterly sumptuous and brilliant in so many regards. Many modern teas have tried to become less formal, telling you that they’re down to earth and not just for the rich anymore. This is not one of them. At all. It embraces what makes it so very special, and is resplendent with all the ornate finery that one would normally associate with a fairytale. There are silver spoons and fine china, elaborate constructions of icing that will dazzle even the most highbrow of food lovers. Everything you could ever want to drink tea in exuberant style.
